“Only time will tell” Says Daniel Levy Ahead Of Amazon Documentary Launch
By Harry Hotspur -

All or Nothing is a great generic title for a sports series. Of course, at Spurs, it takes on a comedic value that only those of us who have been following the club since we were children could have predicted.

While Millennials were running about whooping it up about the film’s exposure, the world class stadium, and state-of-the-art training facilities, us dummies in the cheap seats could smell just how rotten a business model this fiasco was from the very beginning.

Bricks and mortar retail lost the war against the agile online businesses, and so Daniel Levy opened the biggest football retail space in Europe.

Liverpool Football Club made a handful of in-budget adjustments to what was an already competitive squad, and became European and English champions. Daniel Levy had the resources to follow suit, but opted instead to demolish White Hart Lane and build sports themed shopping centre.

THFC lies in ruins, a squad that cannot be improved for many seasons, and with debts even greater than those of Manchester United.

All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur could well be the very first of a new genre, the X-rated comedy.

I have seen worse, I have seen us finishing 15th,19th, I have seen us relegated. I have seen much worse players than some in the present team, hard to believe I know. Relatively speaking the past ten years is like a golden age only surpassed by the Double era team of Bill Nicholson. So I wouldn’t give up hope, we will be competitive again.
But as ever the big prizes, the Premier League the Champions League are going to stay out of reach until someone invests substantially in the players needed. There are no shortcuts. Superstar managers alone won’t do it. Brilliant coaching alone won’t do it. Relying on free transfers, loans and swaps won’t do it. Hoping the academy out of the blue produces three or four geniuses won’t do it.
What has been proven to do it time after time and by numerous teams is major investment in top players and major investment in players wages.

The really annoying part of this was that we were within touching distance only to flounder like a drowned rat because of Levy’s inability to understand the word ambition. Poch presented the chance to him on a golden platter but he was unwilling to take it, instead preferring to say no thanks, I’d rather make lots of money than have footballing success.
If only we had the board of the 80’s when we went after the best players in the world and regularly won trophies, to be around at the same time as Poch running things. We would have been on top of the world.
Instead we’re now one of the worse looking spurs teams I can remember and that’s a fact. Levy hasn’t replaced Trippier, Eriksen or Llorente. Chgeapskate fraud. I bet he’ll keep charging CL and top 4 prices for tickets though…

To be within touching distance of success only to see it disappear over the horizon is the cruellest joke. So many false dawns at Spurs but this one hurts the most because we were so close. Supporting this club sometimes feels like a nightmare I can’t wake up from. I’m clinging to the hope Jose can improve us given time, but my grip is weakening with these phoned-in performances.

From CL finalists to no European football – “we don’t need new players”, actually they are right, because the ones we buy are either not very good, live in a hotel for 4months, are injury prone, not ready, or the wrong profile (or position)….

“marble floor, ply-lining players”

I’m sorry but you are forgetting the ace up Daniel’s sleeve – the stadium naming rights! That is the answer to all our woes!

I wondered how they were going to “edit” this documentary – my guessing its going to be all about the stadium and “woe is me” COVID bla bla…

Pooch’s soundbite of “we are in a different project than other clubs” has come fully home to roost. Nothing that ENIC and Levy do is for the benefit of the football club. I guess that places us firmly in a different project to all the other EPL clubs.

My stadium on my manor that I worked on makes me feel so proud. Cups will come.

Yeah blud I get it but look at Bindipper FC we have a better stadium but they have CL medals and now PL medals.
I am quite old fam and from memory the band on the Titanic were proud of their shiny new ship as well.

Maybe if you ever worked on anything you’re proud of, that will stand for another 100 years +, you’d understand where I’m coming from

The problems as management consultants would say are structural. If the reserves had been spent using past behaviour as a guide to the present it would mostly have been wasted.
Wasted because one man has decimated the scouting / player evaluation systems. One man has ignored the advice of competent professionals and has sacked those same pros and hired yes men. One man has taken it upon himself to get involved in a job for which he has no expertise or professional qualifications. All because he just happens to own the club and can. I said it before John Henry at Liverpool and the owners of Manchester City are wise enough to leave player recruitment to experts. Our owner won’t share his toys though.
